Biden Says Ready To Speak To Putin "If He's Looking For Way To End War"

Biden Says Ready To Speak To Putin "If He's Looking For Way To End War"

US President Joe Biden said that he is prepared to speak with Putin if in fact there is an interest in him deciding he's looking for a way to end the war.
US President Joe Biden said Thursday he would be willing to speak to Vladimir Putin for the first time since the Ukraine invasion if the Russian leader truly wants to end the war.

Biden was speaking during a state visit by French President Emmanuel Macron, who has said he will speak again to Putin after his trip to Washington and has warned against cutting off the Russian leader.

At a joint news conference with Macron, Biden said he had no immediate plans to contact Putin but left open the possibility.

"I'm prepared to speak with Mr. Putin if in fact there is an interest in him deciding he's looking for a way to end the war. He hasn't done that yet," Biden said.

"If that's the case, in consultation with my French and my NATO friends, I'll be happy to sit down with Putin to see what he has in mind. He hasn't done that yet."

Closing ranks, Biden and Macron both vowed long-term support to Ukraine as it fights off Russian invaders.

"There's one way for this war to end -- the rational way. Putin to pull out of Ukraine, number one. But it appears he's not," Biden said.

"Bombing nurseries, hospitals, children's homes. It's sick what he's doing," he said.

"The idea that Putin is ever going to defeat Ukraine is beyond comprehension," Biden said.

"He's miscalculated every single thing he initially calculated."

As Russia amassed troops along the Ukrainian border before the February 24 invasion, Biden and his top diplomat, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, both spoke to Russia and warned of consequences if it attacked.

Blinken is known to have spoken to his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, once since the invasion but narrowly on a proposal to free jailed Americans.

Macron said he planned to talk to Putin in part over the security of the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia plant in Ukraine.

"I will continue to talk to President Putin," Macron said, calling for efforts "to prevent escalation and to achieve concrete results."

But like Biden, Macron said he would not push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into any peace plan that he does not accept.

"We will never urge the Ukrainians to make a compromise that will not be acceptable for them," Macron said.

Macron said Zelensky has shown a "real willingness" to pursue peace, adding, "Our job must be to work together with him."

Zelensky since the invasion has insisted on Ukraine retaking all territory seized by Russia.

Oh ya 1 year ago
Russia has winter on its side. It is just starting to get cold and 34 million Nazi Ukrainians do not have light, heat or water. Put in just needs to give it a month or two and the little head jew Nazi will fold. As far as Biden saying Russia does not have a chance at winning this is but a pipe dream. Poland is already talking about the land they are going after in eastern Ukraine. European countries are questioning their thoughts on being American puppets as they to are suffering from the sanctions America is forcing them to invoke. Russia will win this, Europe will turn against the USA and the US empire will collapse as even Saudi is turning to Russia
